  • Legendary Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee has died

Stan Lee has been hailed a "creative genius" as a host of Hollywood stars paid tribute to the Marvel Comics co-creator.

Social media erupted with an overwhelming outpouring of love, fond memories, and personal stories all honoring the culture-defining life and career of Marvel comics titan Stan Lee, who passed away on Monday.

The Marvel Comics publisher helped to create numerous universe's best-loved characters, including Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk, the X-Men, Black Panther, Iron Man, the Mighty Thor, the Fantastic Four, Daredevil and Ant-Man. He sued the company in 2002 for royalties he said he was owed for the first "Spider-Man" movie.

Many might not know this, but the late Marvel Comic creator Stan Lee has made cameo appearances in a series of Marvel Cinematic Universe productions over the years.

Chris Evans, a.k.a. "Captain America", then kicked off a stream of effusive tweets from MCU actors and directors. Lee remained on the Marvel Comics editorial board after leaving the company to become the chairman emeritus. "A super hero in his own right to Marvel fans around the world, Stan had the power to inspire, to entertain, and to connect", added Iger, who instigated the in hindsight very lucrative purchase of Marvel in 2009 for $4 billion. "What a life and what a thing to have achieved", the Spider-Man star wrote on Instagram. "I'm proud to have been a small part of his legacy and.to have helped bring one of his characters to life".

Tesla and SpaceX entrepreneur Elon Musk said the "many worlds of imagination and delight (Lee) created for humanity will last forever".

Lee worked his way up from an assistant to writing filler in comic books and eventually writing entire comics. "We'll be forever richer having him with us".

Lee's wife Joan died in 2017 and he is survived by his daughter Joan Celia "JC" Lee.

Besides his work as a writer and publisher for Marvel, Lee was also known for his memorable cameos in Marvel movies, where he would pop up to play a side character, becoming a cult favorite in front of the camera as well.
